About Darron "Tripp" Thomas
Music for me has always been not just a career, but my life. While growing up in the Washington DC metropolitan area, I became a multi-instrumentalist by the age of 12. In high school, I was band leader of “Maliaka,” an R&B Top 40 band. Out of this same band came Meshell Ndegeocello and Anthony “Scooty” Wellington, bass player with the Victor Wooten band.
I was later offered a scholarship as a jazz bassist at North Texas State University. I opted instead to travel the world with the US Air Force. Even then, I became known as the Base Bass Player.
After the Air Force, I began my professional career honing my skills as an audio engineer at Ultimix (later Full Spectrum Multimedia), and then as an engineer/producer at Strong Arm Entertainment.
But I wanted more than a job. I wanted to build close partnerships with every artist I work for, partnerships that are fulfilling both professionally and spiritually. Creative work, after all, demands more than just communication and skill, but passion from everyone involved. So I invested my time, money, and soul into Media1Music Productions.
I have not only been rewarded with the company of talented and energetic artists, but with the opportunity to work with them in making great music.
I am currently producing tracks for an upcoming album by Shelby J, Prince’s right-hand vocalist. I have also contributed my production and engineering skills to Raheen DeVaughn and Italian electro dance producers Michele Menini and Gianluca Viani. When I am not in the studio, I also play bass for the band No Straight Answer.
